"Sun Microsystems will hold its first-ever Australian
Kernel conference in July this year that will examine any open
source kernels and technologies within those kernels.
"Senior Kernel Software Engineer, for Sun's Solaris, James
McPherson said the conference was timely as organisations are
increasingly using Open Source operating systems to enable
continued innovation under a tighter IT budget.
""The current economy and the ongoing growth and uptake of Open
Source means that this year is an opportune time in the market to
provide a platform for the industry to network and collaborate on
this topic," he said."
